Definatly better than City of b/c it's the first stand alone in the series. Sadly not forgotten is easily forgotten after you've read it which I find ironic. It's nice to read if you're a fan and looking for something that's Buffy-esque or if you are looking for a stand alone. Recommended for Fans.
Angel takes on a case of spontaneous combustion, or does an evil demon brought back to life have something to do with it? And is the lovely Cordelia next on his list? Great read!
Nancy Holder dieplays the imaginative writing skills that won her several Horror Writer awards in this tale of the lost and the oppressed in LA. She introduces a bunch of monsters and gods I've never heard of before, and Angel has his hands full fighting them to defend the innocent. She is defenitely one of the best authors of the Buffy books.
Even if it takes an eternity, he will make amends...
A crime wave has swept the Los Angeles area, which under normal circumstances would be par for the course. But nothing links these particular victims except the cause of deaththeir bodies were burned from the inside out. Obviously supernatural forces are at work.
While Angel investigates the murders, Cordelia tracks down a band of child pickpockets. Surprisingly, both searches lead to the same place: a wealthy slumlord who has all but imprisoned the children's immigrant parents.
And conducts elaborate rituals to Latura, the Indonesian God of the Dead.
Angel, Doyle, and Cordelia may have had a rocky start in L.A., but they realize they've got it much easier than the immigrants. Characteristically, Angel wants to help. But can he free them before the Feast of Laturna? And if not, will they become the next sacrifices of someone's quest for immortality?
